Insecure Episode 5 Review: “Hella Shook”

Insecure Episode 5 Review: “Hella Shook”

It’s official, the hoe phase is on and Issa makes no apologies. As I’m sure you are aware, Issa is embracing the single life and well so is Lawrence. In Episode 5, “Hella Shook,” we see Issa’s roster in full effect. There’s “Neighbor-bae,” Daniel (played by Y’lan Noel) and now a Latino hottie! Issa can’t be stopped! Even with failed dating efforts and app hopping, she’s committed to seeing what being single means—sexually! We see her poorly juggle her men and get lost in her urges to be desired, needed, wanted and sexy. Things take a turn for the worst when she runs her car into a truck in the midst of sexting...

Game of Thrones S7: “Beyond the Wall”

“Beyond the Wall” sees many of our protagonists (depending on how you feel about some of these guys) teaming up to go beyond the wall, into the wintery north lands in order to find a Wight. It also deals with fractured relationships between the Stark siblings, political discussions between a Queen and her Hand and an invitation from an old foe and how to best deal with it. Sweeping views of Iceland, the immense mountains, steep valleys and tiny streams that dot the landscape give you an ominous feel. You have the best fighters headed north of the Wall. Now, before we get stoked: a lot of these guys can’t stand each other. Past...

Coming Up on the August 22, 2017 Edition of REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL

Coming Up on the August 22, 2017 Edition of REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL

We have horribly neglected HBO Sports and such programs as REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL. We admit that. Gumbel and company, for example, have been airing sports stories for twenty-two seasons and when I saw the announcement that the content of that show’s 245th installment was posted I thought, “damn some attention needs bestowed.” So here it is it in entirety.   REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL EXAMINES THE STATE OF THE NFL PLAYERS ASSOCIATION; EXPLORES THE BOOMING YOUTH SPORTS TOURISM INDUSTRY IN AMERICA; PROFILES ZACK HAMPLE, BASEBALL’S INFAMOUS BALL HAWK; AND REVISITS THE DANGEROUS ISLE OF MAN MOTORCYCLE RACE WHEN A NEW...

HBO Has Got 2 DOPE QUEENS

Say what? Yeah, I’ve never heard of 2 Dope Queens but I will as HBO has struck a deal to bring the observations of these two gals to the network in 2018. To get the facts and the hype here is a press release giving us a peek at just who this duo is and what they have to say.   HIT PODCAST 2 DOPE QUEENS, FROM JESSICA WILLIAMS AND PHOEBE ROBINSON, COMES TO HBO FOR A SERIES OF HOUR-LONG SPECIALS   LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10, 2017 – The hit comedy podcast 2 DOPE QUEENS, featuring Jessica Williams (The Incredible Jessica James) and Phoebe Robinson (Broad City), will come to HBO next year for a series of four hour-long specials, it was...

VICE NEWS TONIGHT’s Charlottesville Report Leaves Impact

VICE NEWS TONIGHT’s Charlottesville Report Leaves Impact

HBO’s news report VICE NEWS TONIGHT has been airing Monday through Thursday at 7:30pm ET since October 10, 2016. But it wasn’t until last Monday, 08.14.17, that mainstream America caught on. It was on that date that the 22-minute VICE segment Charlottesville: Race and Terror aired.  Since then the report has gone viral. Hosted by journalist Elle Reeve for VICE the news segment take the camera to the heart of the protesting and proves, without directly saying so, that the white supremacists that were there all suited up in protective gear and numerous concealed weapons were not there for a non-violent assemblage. The footage of the car...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Nocturnal Animals”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Nocturnal Animals”

Nocturnal Animals is the second feature length film from acclaimed fashion designer turned filmmaker Tom Ford, whose foray into filmmaking has proven to be an incredulous stroke of genius as he continues to dazzle audiences with gripping stories and mesmerizing characters. As with A Single Man, Tom Ford demonstrates an enchanting ability to tell a story with imagination, flair and of course, style. Nocturnal Animals is no different and the strangely structured narrative adds to the sense of unease instilled in you for the film’s duration. Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Aaron Taylor Johnson and Michael Shannon shine so brightly in the...

HBO is Casting Fast On Upcoming HBO Films About Herve, Paterno & 451

HBO has been ramping up on its potential HBO Films presentations as of late. We already know that three such works are moving rather quickly. In this post, we look at casting notices for MY DINNER WITH HERVE, the Joe Paterno film and FAHRENHEIT 451.   MY DINNER WITH HERVE Eager to see Peter Dinklage as Fantasy Island/Bond actor Herve Villichaize? Well, even though casting has gotten underway, and more of that in a second, we will not see that film this year. You can get a glimpse of Dinklage, in character, though.   Pictured with Dinklage is James Dornan, whom we already know from a previous post will be the journalist Danny Tate....

Insecure: Episodes 3 “Hella Open” & 4 “Hella LA”

Insecure: Episodes 3 “Hella Open” & 4 “Hella LA”

Last year left Issa a bit out in the cold, and trying to figure out how to get her game back.  Her girls gave her some hard truths to digest, and now it is up to her to work it out.  She’s ready to get back on the dating scene, or is she?  Waiting on a chance to talk to Lawrence (Jay Ellis) doesn’t exactly mean that Issa is ready to get down with someone else.  And it doesn’t seem like Lawrence is waiting around for her either.  But in the end, some couples end up finding their way back to each other. Is it possible these two really do belong together?   Episode 3: “Hella Open” Issa makes it very...

DEADWOOD Movie & TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3 Get Closer to Happening

DEADWOOD Movie & TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3 Get Closer to Happening

Two acclaimed HBO series are getting closer to seeing their next incarnations and fans should be excited about it. Both David Milch’s DEADWOOD and Nick Pizzolatto’s TRUE DETECTIVE are moving forward with new developments. HBO’s Programming Chief Casey Bloys was happy to announce the news at July’s TCA event. DEADWOOD is finally moving to the big cinematic screen. The final script for the movie is in hand. Bloys said –  “He totally delivered on this. If we can do for the right budget it makes sense. We’re talking to directors and we’re getting the cast together, which is not an easy task. Then we’re inclined to do it...

Game of Thrones: “Eastwatch”

Game of Thrones: “Eastwatch”

After last week’s episode of Game of Thrones left us a little singed from all the dragon fire, “Eastwatch,” was a bit of a slow-burn, focusing on conversations rather than carnage. The episode opened with Jaime Lannister, who we had last seen plunging down into the depths after an unfortunately short lived attempt at slaying Daenerys and ending her reign once and for all. He was about to be roasted, when Bronn tackled him into the water, but Jaime is still not happy about almost drowning– “You could have killed me,” he lectures as the sellsword heaves him, muddy armor and all, onto the shore. Bronn, not...

HBO Still In The Game But Not With Hackers

HBO Still In The Game But Not With Hackers

  The hackers made their next move. Whoever is behind the heist of HBO content released some of it today. HBO is not giving any confirmation of what was specifically released but according to news sources, it included episodes of Season 9 of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, INSECURE, BALLERS and upcoming new series THE DEUCE and BARRY. That latter one is the Bill Hader comedy not airing until 2018. In response, HBO made this statement: “We are not in communication with the hacker and we’re not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released. It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO. The hacker...

Jon Stewart Still With HBO

Jon Stewart Still With HBO

Hey, have you heard that David Letterman is coming back to TV via Netflix? He is coming back a heck of a lot sooner than Jon Stewart is. We are still waiting for him to grace HBO’s airwaves again. Yes, again as he did appear in his own comedy special back in 1996  called UNLEAVENED and also as the host of the special GEORGE CARLIN: 40 YEARS OF COMEDY.   Stewart has not made an appearance yet because as we all know by now his state-of-the-art animated gig died. It was killed in May with the following quote as an explanation: “We all thought the project had great potential, but there were technical issues in terms of production and...

HBO Documentary Films: BRILLO BOX 3¢ OFF

HBO Documentary Films: BRILLO BOX 3¢ OFF

Overview: In 1969, Lisanne Skyler’s parents bought an Andy Warhol “Brillo Box (3¢ Off)” sculpture for $1,000. An exact replica of a shipping carton for Brillo soap pads, Warhol’s Brillo Boxes were at first dismissed by the art world. But 40 years later, with Warhol’s reputation as a contemporary-art visionary long secured, the same piece sold for more than $3 million at a record-breaking Christie’s auction. Blending a humorous family narrative with Pop Art history, and debuting the week of Warhol’s 89th birthday, this documentary makes its way from a New York family’s living room to the contemporary global art market,...

ROOM 104: Series Premiere “Ralphie” & “Pizza Boy”

ROOM 104: Series Premiere “Ralphie” & “Pizza Boy”

It is time to check into ROOM 104 and we are really looking forward to it. Just like GETTING ON was this series is tucked away to the after primetime hours. I never could figure out why HBO, with all the other nights of the week to fill, likes to place certain shows at 11:30pm. We have already announced this latest foray from Mark & Jay Duplass before and are now finally ready to review it for you. Just count it as one of those little shows that are worth a look besides the big Sunday @ 9:00pm crowd. So settle in for our look at the anthology series which examines all the possible stories that could unfold in one ordinary...

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

HBOWatch Movie Review: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”

If you are like me, and I do certainly hope so, then you believe that there is nothing more glorious for the world state than more Harry Potter Universe.  We are agreed, yes?  Good, now we can move on.  Admittedly, I have been a Harry Potter fanatic since I was very young.  It got me through some of the worst troubles of my life.  All of which is in depth discussed on my blog if you’re so inclined *wink, wink, nudge, nudge.*  But for now, let’s discuss the wonder of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Briefly mentioned in the original Harry Potter storylines, Newt Scamander is a magical zoologist who studied a vast...
